Re: Neuralgia causing ear pain ?

I haven't tried Tegretol, but I have tried a few different meds over the last 6 months, and I have found that all of them have had some bad side-effects. I recently tried Topamax, and it made me feel drowsy and sick all the time. I am now trying a low dose of Amitriptyline. It seems to be working so far, but it does make me drowsy. It will make you very drowsy in higher doses.
